Stop mis-teaching the observations of science!

Nov 29, 2015 | | Say something

All you new-age non-scientist types, stop mis-teaching the observations of science! You don’t know what you’re talking about! (And that’s coming from someone who makes no claim to being an expert on things, just rationally observant.) “matter is created by consciousness” “observation in the future can change the past” “reality does not exist unless we […more]

Do you not see the white christian terrorists in our very midst?

Nov 27, 2015 | | Say something

Another homegrown White Christian American terrorist has struck the United States today. Three dead, one a police officer, in Colorado Springs. He is being called (just) a “gunman” by the news (and a “suspect,” not terrorist), but of course. And America’s focus remains on the perceived imminent threat of Muslims half way across the world […more]

“The History of Thanksgiving” As presented by Care2 – The Petition Site Send a Thanksgiving eCard! Start a Petition! “Don’t cry fowl, but the first Thanksgiving was not celebrated by the Pilgrims. In fact, Thanksgiving Day has been celebrated in one way or another throughout history by cultures around the world. Today, Americans of all […more]

The Radicalized *ARE* following the scriptures of your faith tradition.

My goodness. John Pavlovitz has not actually read his Bible or paid much attention to the history of Christianity, has he? Like so many, these days, he resides mentally in a modern revisionist doctrine of Christian theology. Hence, why most who are like him cannot see the source of extremism in our midst. The radicalized […more]

The most accurate description of love!

Nov 17, 2015 | | Say something

The most accurate description of love I’ve ever heard given by someone else. … “So what is love? And why is it important for sanity? … Love began millions of years ago. Fear and anger were old when love began. Love emerged because flight and confrontation were no longer enough to guarantee survival. … Love […more]

Why we have Religion and Violence in this world.

Nov 15, 2015 | | Say something

Consider this: Why are we so quick as humans to inflict harm upon others? Why is it so important that we control others through right forms of ideology and behavior? How is it that we can so easily justify murder and genocide as a righteous” act to engage in? Or proclaim an archaic set of […more]

Research that contradicts commonsense popular assumption that religious kids are better kids.

I laugh … In experiential understanding. … “Overall, our findings … contradict the commonsense and popular assumption that children from religious households are more altruistic and kind towards others,” said the authors of The Negative Association Between Religiousness and Childrens Altruism Across the World, published this week in Current Biology.” More generally, they call into […more]

If only religious Jews honestly knew what they are talking about!

I just listened to Rabbi Chaim Mintz respond to a question raised about secular Humanistic Jews. His response was expectedly short-sighted, judgmentally quick, and indignant. Basically he said that if you don’t believe in the supernatural and don’t embrace Torah, then you’re not Jewish. If it weren’t so laughable, it would be extremely sad. But, […more]

Intermarriage children of Jews are most attached to Judaism in college.

This is some encouraging research, especially for those of us who just “knew” it to be true and now have some research data to back it up. We need more research like this. Like the involvement of Chabad on college campuses, any kind of looking into with the desire to relate to those with different […more]

Knowing correctly “who is” and “who isn’t” a Jew!

Hmmm. Let’s see, the present day Samaritans are the actual descendants of the Hebrew Israelites of the conquered 1st Kingdom time period (monarchy period, pre-dates priestly theocracy period of 2nd Kingdom times, which was Judean reborn Jewish Israel). Let’s see, we have Ethiopian Jews that are directly from Africa and have ancestral ties to 2nd […more]
